Default U.S. out of Iraq in 19 months

Iraq will be safe for the next 100 years. No doubt.

Officials: US troops to leave Iraq by August 2010

WASHINGTON—The United States will withdraw most of its troops from Iraq by August 2010, 19 months after President Barack Obama's inauguration day, according to administration officials who expect Obama to make the announcement this week.

The withdrawal plan would fulfill one of Obama's central campaign pledges, albeit a little more slowly than he promised. He said he would withdraw troops within 16 months, roughly one brigade a month from the time of his inauguration.

The U.S. military would leave behind a residual force, between 30,000 and 50,000 troops, to continue advising and training Iraqi security forces. Also staying beyond the 19 months would be intelligence and surveillance specialists and their equipment, including unmanned aircraft, according to two administration officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because the plan has not been made public.

i love the fact that obama voted for this, then argued against it.., then saying he would withdraw fully, now 2 saying he is still keeping soldiers over there... hahaha..,

Nothing like saying to the insurgents "sit back and wait" so they can come back to play when the Americans aren't around to kick their arses! I am all for leaving when the job is done and Iraq is stable and able to stand on her feet, but not until then!

Bingo. Now the curmudgeons have 19 months to strategize thanks to ol' big mouth. Telephone, telegraph, tellObama, telltheinsurgents.

Still say it isn't going to happen.

I KNEW IT!!!!

Folks, this was the plan before Obama ever took office and now his administration is trying to take credit for it. I called it in another thread about 3-4 months ago.

I'm sorry, but claiming ANY CREDIT FOR THIS WHAT-SO-EVER is a jerk-off move.

Again, it was the Iraqi's who had been requesting for our withdrawl for over a year and the former administration had already had the plan decided and agreed upon. If Obama ever argued against it, it's because he needed to be in office before it took place/was announced and FOR THIS LOUSY PURPOSE. This really pisses me off!!

This is fine. 50k American troops is about the right size to stabilize and support the new Iraqi Army.

But saying that we are "withdrawing" is wrong. That would mean we'd keep a few thousand troops.

This was pretty much what the timetable was going to be regardless. I will PUKE if the Dems and Obama start claiming a victory in Iraq.
